A few coats of paint, Mod Podge and glitter transform plain wooden stars into festive patriotic decor. Paint the stars. Add a layer of Mod Podge and sprinkle with glitter. Spray with a coat of Krylon Crystal Clear to set.

Patriotic Banner

Recycle old jeans into a pretty Patriotic Banner! Add gems to make it shine. Find full instructions here:

Patriotic Straw Wreath

Sparkly 4th of July Decor

You’ll need about 125 colored straws (I used red and blue for the 4th), cardboard, hot glue, ribbon and adhesive bling. Make a 6″ ring out of cardboard. Cut 50 straws to 6 1/2 inches, 50 straws to 5 1/2 inches and cut 25 straws in half. Start by hot glueing long straws around ring (blue). Then hot glue the medium size straws (red) between the blue straws. Finish up by gluing the small straws (red) between the medium straws. Add a red ribbon. Adhere bling on the ribbon to add some sparkle.

Mason Jar Candle Holders

Patriotic Mason Jar Candle Holders

Use masking tape to section off the top of a Mason Jar. Paint the bottom section with acrylic paint (3 coats). Then brush with Mod Podge and add glitter. Fill with beans and a candle. Tie a pretty ribbon around the rim of the jar.

Sparkly Glitter Jar

If you happen to have some “leftover” glitter… mix it together to brighten up a plain Mason Jar. Just paint Mod Podge on the jar and sprinkle red, white and blue glitter. Spray with a coat of Krylon Crystal Clear to set.
